“AS PROUDLY HER
NAME WE BEAR”
The Inst two lines of the Alma
Mater eould mean one of two things
long may the praises and the song
of Salem College be broadcast and
repeated hv someone else—prefer
ably the faithful alumnae, or let
me not forget to tell others of the
merits of my own college. One in
terpretation avoids a duty, easting
definite manner, While the other
meaning assumes an obligation. It
is. in fact, a practical application of
the loyalty promised to this institu-'
.Salem’s conservativeness equals her
progressiveness, with tiie result that
comparatively few peojde are aware
of the true worth of the college.
\\hil( it is well enough to dei'lare
that merit speaks for itself, llte pas
sive practice of that theory never
brings a student to the college, never
adds a contribution to the endow
ment. The age in which we live de
mands advertisement of anything
that is to be sold, regardless of how|
strongly a dignified silence might
display its qualities. The adva
tageous part of advertising som
thing that is worth while is that the
truth may be told without fear, and
there is much truth to be told.
As an attractive, if sentimental,
advertisement of a few years ago
said. ‘‘We are advertised by out
loving friends.” That is the way
.Salem College is advertised, and
that is the way it will continue to be
advertised, no matter if .some (
paign should be launched to pro
claim in electric lights to every city
in the nation the name and the his
tory of the school. A word of prai.se
I-et’s get serious a while and
learn to place a few quotations. We
have known the quotations all our
lives, but somehow or another, we
have just accepted them as if they
were here in the beginning. Surely
these authors woiuld like to have
credit for their work. If you run
across a quotation you have never
heard, learn it, too. It’s worth it.

To the Salernite:
What has happened to the Re
publicans on this campus ? Have
they all lost their identity amid the
onslaught of Democratic meetings
and organizations.? Merely because
they are in the minority on this par
ticular campus is certainly no excuse
for them to di.sappear into oblivion.
.\re they going to allow this entire
campus to be run over with Demo
crats without even attempting to
Every question that has ever ex
isted has two sides to it, and con
ditions would be in a rather question
able state of affairs if one side did
nothing to hold up its end of the
argument. While one hears Demo
cratic announcements in chapel ant
reads Democratic headlines in the
Salernite, one finds neither hide nor
hair of a Republican, and we know
that there are some. This is an
earnest plea for every Republican,
Socialist, or what have you, to stand
up against this sudden tide of De
mocratic billows, to put one foot on
the soap box, and to brave even rot

that is spoken sincerely by a Salem-
ite is worth more than a full page
advertisement in a popular maga
zine. If Salem girls want their col
lege to be recognized as a school of
the highest standards and of happ;

o their friends about it, talk about
t. and boost the school with all the
ardor that active loyalty demands
‘Long may her praise re-echo” from
the lips of the students themselves
Each Salem girl, new and old,
s now had sufficient time to adjust
and readjust herself to the con
ditions existing in .school, and it is
1 now on that Student Self-
Government begins to function in its
entirety. This is the second year
that student self-government has
been what its name actually implied.
It worked wonderfully last year, but
perhajjs the novelty of it whs
sponsible for the success.
This year is the decisive yeai
.self-government works- this yea
will probably work indefinitely; if
it fails, the good record of last year
will be of no avail. Quoting our ex-
President, “We have been our own
self-starter, but are we going to be
our own accelerator and our own
brakes?” The import.ant part of an*-
enterprise is not the spurt at the be
ginning. but the steady progress up
ward. We can climb. Are we go-
In The Realms of Gold
“Much Have I Traveled in the Realms of Gold”
Come, let’s fly away over the land and sea. Surely, after a
week of campus life atnd hard studying, we deserve a week-end of
delightful travel. Ages ago Ulysses said, “I am a part of all that
I have met, and he was indeed right. Let’s go and explore other
land.?, meet new people, and broaden our own out-look on life.
. ) on if you like but as for me. I’m
going to drop down in my parachute and dream awhile with the
Brontie sisters, better known as the Three Virgins of Ilart'orth. These
.■sisters, as different of .soul as of face, contain every latent power.
Infinite aspiriations, boundless dreams,and an inextinguishable thirst
for beauty, love, and happiness were theirs. Yet this thirst shall
be appeased by no beauty, by no love, by no happiness. Their arms
embrace only the void—^a dream, or perhaps a dog. Blessed misery!
Yet this deep life within, burning with an unexampled and unap-
peosed heat must needs find an outlet. It is the blank white page.
All that imagination can conjure forth is revealed there. It is in
this way that Charlotte gives birth to Jane Kyre.
Ah, here is the country parson’s cottage. The s]jring weather
promises well for his roses, pansies, and peas. As the old couple
in the guise of Shepherds In Sackcloth sit down to tea, they do not
really look old—not their full sixties. Their two different faces—
his dark-complexioned and heavy featured, hers still wearing the
afterglow of her girlhood’s pink and white—have both something of
the alert, watchful innocence of children. The.se are faces of those
who accept at the hands of life both good and evil, who wonder
but do not criticize, whose souls have been purged by a simplicity
which is almost faith. But I must say good by tO' these simple souls
who are caught up by fate in the whirling pathos of life.
Let’s stop now in the Southland, 'fliere is plenty of wide space
in which to light. The mo.st alluring spot seems to be Green Pastures.
The term is misleading, however, for the. place is not green but
black, .not pastures but a living ]>eople. It is the untutored negro
race with a terrific spiritual hunger and great humility. It is pa
thetically appealing and at the same time grotesquely amusing to
see how these black Christians, many of whom cannot read the book
which is the treasure house of their faith—^have adopted the contents
of the Bible to the consistencies of their everyday lives. Here is
enjicted a great and stirring melo-drama of the creation of the earth
and man in a realistic fashion. Green Pastures shows the confusion
in the black man’s mind of actuality .and the spiritual.
